Assistant Sound Editor
I studied Audio and Music Technology at university, then started as a runner at Films@59. After 6 months I specialised in audio for their overflow theatres within Bath Road Studios (HTV). Any free time I had was spent working on the sound for student films, in order to learn Pro Tools. The sound team gave me loads of great advice. When I was running for Evolutions TV I delivered drives to Wounded Buffalo regularly, and that was when they noticed my passion for sound. Now I’m working as an assistant sound editor and Foley editor.
I’ve always been interested in music and sound. I was really musical when I was younger but I was always too shy to perform. I have always been fascinated by the mood that is created by the sound in film and TV, it’s sometimes subliminal but without it you really notice the impact it creates.
What is the best aspect of your job?
Working on ProTools all day!
And my colleagues – everyone is incredibly supportive; it’s like a little family here!
What is your advice for people who want to work in the film industry?
Sometimes, you have no idea how the person you are talking to, can help you – Some of the most unlikely characters have helped me to further my career.
I really like the saying: be nice to people on your way up, you might meet them on your way down.
